If you want a great place for a corporate retreat then this could work for you. Lodge and dorm type accommodation, conference room and communal kitchen facilities make for an ideal venue for a wide range of functions. The owners are super friendly and helpful - they prepared a breakfast BBQ one morning. Views look out to the sea and...

My partner and I really enjoyed our stay at Mt Vernon Lodge. We found our cabin to be basic, clean, very comfortable and cosy. The communal cooking facilities were very good, including a fully equipped kitchen and barbeques. There communal deck area was a lovely place to sit, enjoy our meal and take in the view. The location was great....

My wife and I spent two delightful nights here. The owner, David, is a gracious and outgoing host who makes sure all your needs are met. The view of the Akaroa harbor is wonderful. It is a bit too far to walk to town, but the drive, although steep, is easy to navigate. The location is also well situated to...

Fab venue to get everyone together to celebrate a wedding. We utilised all the facilities. A large number we're able to stay on site. Great open spaces for playing games and natural spots to take photos. Great views down to the Akaroa harbour.

Mt Vernon is a pretty secluded setting, on the side of the mountain but only a few minutes drive from the sea. Whilst the accommodation was nice and well laid out (we stayed in a cabin), it was of moderate expectation for New Zealand terms. The front room incredibly lovely with a double bed and kitchen/dining area overlooking the garden...

We stayed in the Lodge for friends 30th wedding anniversary. What a wonderful place for a gathering. Great rooms, kitchen, internal sunken fireplace, deck and grassy area for the kids or to play volleyball etc. Self catering with everything you could need in the kitchen. The managers were friendly and helpful. On site there are also cottages and cabins for...

We stayed at Mt Vernon Lodge for two nights . The room was very clean, beds comfortable. A bonus was the washing machine /dryer facilities. Room was spacious with a separate twin room. I would highly recommend a stay here staff very friendly. We enjoyed our stay very much.

Whilst the location is indeed very beautiful - a word of warning to those going there in the winter - take some ice skates. The decks of very dangerous once they have a bit of ice on them and inadequate lighting at night can make this a wee mine field as I found out when I took a tumble on...

A mid-winter holiday with snow and ice makes this a great place to stay if you’re willing to take a few risks. Although ice and snow are part of the experience, not enough has been done to minimize the risk of injury. The decks outside each cabin ice up, or become covered in snow, and need covering in an anti-slip...

This place was so nice, we stayed in one of the suites in the Lodge and the room was great. Our suite was warm and well set up with comfy beds and a lovely view of the harbor. Located on the edge of town so has a very peaceful atmosphere but still close enough to town that you could walk.

“I'd strongly encourage staying in Maison -- it is great for one or two people. It also has better wifi access (which at times is spotty) than the Lodge, but one can always walk to the office if the signal is weak.”
